Citizen Guide to Quality Education.
Tompkins, Rachel, Ed.; Kaeser, Susan, Ed.
A collection of five articles focuses on some of the factors that promote quality education in public elementary and secondary education. Each article is accompanied by a list of sources, resources, and exemplary schools or programs. The first, on student discipline, discusses how to organize schools in ways that encourage disciplined behavior from students, parents, teachers, and administrators. The next article reviews the theories and research on which patterns of school organization are based and presents options for school organization at the school system and building level. One optional type of school organization--magnet schools--is examined in the third article, which describes the rationale for establishing magnet schools, the issues involved, the roles of school leaders and the community, administrative requirements, and costs and other problems. The fourth article analyzes standardized tests, discusses test abuses, and offers suggestions for improving test usage. In the final article, the effects on special education of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act are discussed; included are summaries of basic information on special children, their needs, and the provisions of the law.
